The 2024 Tour de France

Will Pogačar manage to complete the Giro-Tour double, a feat not seen since Marco Pantani in 1998? Will Vingegaard have recovered sufficiently from his crash at the Tour of the Basque Country? How will Remco Evenepoel fare in his first Tour de France? Is Roglic capable of winning the only Grand Tour missing from his palmares? The presence of the Fantastic 4 promises a Tour de France of anthology for the battle for the overall classification!

With 3 Italian stages to start with, the Galibier on stage 4, a stage on the white gravel roads around Troyes, a simply monstrous final week and a never-before-seen finish in Nice, there should be plenty to see! All the info on the 2024 edition here!

The bikes of the great champions are on display to bear witness to the technological and strategic developments in top-level cycling. Compare Luis Ocana’s steel bike to the ultra-light, aerodynamic machines used by Lidl-Trek riders in time trials. Each bike tells a unique story and is well worth seeing for yourself.

As well as the jerseys and bikes, our collection includes rare objects that will take you into the intimacy of the Tour de France: helmets, gloves, race numbers, panniers, water bottles and many other objects as incredible as they are unusual, from the oldest to the most recent.

On the eve of the start of the Tour de France 2024, we invite you to come and discover our exceptional exhibition.  The Maison du Cyclisme Liège-Bastogne-Liège awaits you to celebrate the history and spirit of the Tour. Immerse yourself in the legend, feel the adrenalin and get ready to experience the excitement of the Grande Boucle!
